Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi got emotional at an online event for the beneficiaries of government schemes in Gujarat. The PM got emotional after hearing about a man's problems as the latter spoke of his daughter's dreams to become a doctor. The daughter, who was present at the event, also started crying.

Both of his daughters, according to their father, Ayub Patel, were beneficiaries of the government scheme and were able to study thanks to the scholarship money supplied by the government.

While talking with the sight impaired Ayub Patel, the Prime Minister inquired about his daughter's ambition. He stated that one of his daughters is in class 8, the other in class 12, and the third in class 1.

"The government will take care of the youngest one’s education till class 8. The other two also get a scholarship", he said.

He went on to say that his older daughter aspires to be a doctor in the future. When questioned, the daughter stated that she had always wanted to be a doctor due to her father's medical issues.
